Rafa Cabrera Bello
35-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
It feels like Cabrera Bello has been around for 20 years, always on the brink of greatness, yet never breaking through. In reality, he's actually only played full time on the PGA Tour for two seasons now. He's played very well during those two seasons, but he hasn't taken that next step yet. That next step would be either a PGA Tour win or better yet a major win, but something always seems to get in the way with Cabrera Bello. On the bright side, since joining the PGA Tour two years ago, he's played 19 and 20 events, which is better than the typical 15-16 events that most transplants play. He's also put up solid earnings numbers, posting $1.9 in his first season and $2.4 million last season. It's the $2.4 million that makes it hard to pull the trigger on him his year though as unless he finds a win somewhere on the schedule, it's unlikely that he'll significantly improve upon that number. Cabrera Bello has plenty of value in draft formats, but not in salary cap formats this season. Read Past Outlooks
T6 at BMW PGA Championship
September 23, 2019
Cabrera-Bello closed with a three-under 69 on Sunday at the BMW PGA Championship to finish 13-under and tied for sixth.
Cabrera-Bello probably should've finished inside of the top-5, but the Spaniard played holes 13-18 in a collective three-over-par over the final two rounds. Nonetheless, he's now up to 21st in the European Tour's Race to Dubai and just notched his best result since a T4 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. He'll be in the field again this week at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where he tied for fourth in 2009.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Cabrera Bello impressed in his first full season on the PGA Tour with four top-10s and eight top-25s in just 19 starts. More impressive was the placement of those top-10s. Cabrera Bello finished in the top-5 at The Players and the Open Championship. At just 33, there's still time for Cabrera Bello to improve and if he can find another gear at the big events, he can take the next step in his career. His number from last season leaves just enough room for improvement and as such, he's definitely a guy to consider this season.
The Spainiar really became known to American golf fans this past year, cracking the top 30 in the OWGR. He'll be in all the majors and WGCs, and his value will be determined by how many other events he enters. He hasn't indicated his plans as yet.
